Exclamation Stuck In Bootloader

I flashed ViperONE which completed successfully. On initial boot though I am stuck on the bootloader menu. If I try to enter recovery the screen goes black and returns to the bootloader. I can get to the fastboot screen but my computer will not detect the device fastboot only says "waiting for device". fastboot menu does not change to fastboot usb. I am assuming since it was a new rom install that debugging is NOT turned on. Doing a factory reset through the bootloader did not help. My bootloader is unlocked and I am S-Off. Any helpers?

EDIT: Upon more research the fact that my HBOOT is 1.44 and not 1.55 as well as my computer running windows 8.1 I might have some troubles here. Is there hope for an RUU?
